Review 2024 Confidence Report


In our efforts to inform our customers about the presence of “forever chemicals” (also known as PFAS), in the Muscle Shoals Utilities Board water supply, we have actively tested and reported the presence of these chemicals.  In conjunction with ADEM, we have monitored the levels of these chemicals in the Tennessee River which serves as the source of our drinking water.  The Muscle Shoals Utilities Board is taking action to install treatment technologies to reduce the PFAS contaminants in our drinking water to a safe level consistent with the EPA’s Health Advisory.  Please see the links listed below for more information regarding PFAS in drinking water and what the Muscle Shoals Utilities Board is doing about PFAS in drinking water.  Thank you.
